This is an intensive, hands-on and above all fun underwater-specific workshop.
The beginning session is suitable for Lightroom newbies, or anyone wanting to review or renew their Lightroom chops.
To get the most out of the workshop, you’ll need a laptop running the most recent version of Lightroom Classic that your OS can handle, and at least 1 external hard drive (preferably 2), all with the appropriate power sources and cables. Make sure your laptop is functioning well and you can open Lightroom Classic. There’s a lot of information to cover, and we won’t have time to fix computer problems.
You’ll need 3-5 of your own underwater images for me to work on. All skill levels of shooter are welcome!
FRIDAY 7PM – 10PM
Friday evening is a peek into the key concepts of Lightroom, and a check-out dive for your editing system. Bring your laptop and drives, and set them up to make sure everything’s in good working order. I’ll also be asking you what your goals are for the workshop. Try to think of something more specific than “I want to make my images look better” (although that’s a good one!).
SATURDAY 10AM – 6 PM
Saturday’s session focuses on workflow – you’ll get the tools and techniques you need to save yourself from drowning in your own images. Learn to organize efficiently, so you can get to the fun part of the editing process more quickly.
SUNDAY 10AM – 6PM
Sunday’s session focuses on the Develop Module – This is the fun part. Learn to harness the power of post and maximize the potential of your shots. It’s magic.
Class limit of 12 people
If you haven’t looked into it already, I recommend checking out Adobe’s Photography Package for Lightroom Classic and Photoshop CC. It’s a dynamite deal and the way of the future, like it or not.
